Docker mounting error on linux debain arm system



I have a arm board that I running the debian system witch kernel 4.4.143.
I want to run the docker on it.
but I got an error when I run the command
" docker run --rm hello-world"

docker: Error response from daemon: OCI runtime create failed: container_linux.go:348: starting container process caused “process_linux.go:402: container init caused “rootfs_linux.go:58: mounting \“mqueue\” to rootfs \”/var/lib/docker/vfs/dir/f4f8a237951b29fb0aa1d39b6d77c8a12b7d127bc8fccc082f452e189453cbbe\” at \"/dev/mqueue\" caused \“no such device\”"": unknown.

is any one know what is type error?
is filesystem issue?
or miss some kernel modules?
or other error?

Are you running as root or another user?? That is typically an error you get from docker when you do not have the right permissions on your call.

If you run ps -aux | grep docker, do you see the docker processes?


running as root。and yes, there is docer running in daemon

Ok, I think I got it pinned down running a box with the same kernel. Seems like the queue isn’t created by default.

You could try to add the following lines to the end of /etc/rc.d/rc.local

mkdir /dev/mqueue
mount -t mqueue none /dev/mqueue


OK, thank you, i will try and let you kown the result.

hello, I have add the lines as you told to /etc/rc.local & /etc/init.d/rc.local too. ( /etc/rc.d/rc.local not found in my system)
and reboot, but it’s not work.
and I try it by manual , it’s failed too.

First, I thought it’s lost some kernel modules.
Because I got an error when I install and startup the docker,
the error is :

docker: Error response from daemon: failed to create endpoint portainer on network bridge: failed to add the host (veth30b86ef) <=> sandbox (veth3ec0179) pair interfaces: operation not supported.

and I just add a kernel module (see the picture)

for it, and update the kernel for this system, then this error is gone.(but got above error (mounting)) .

So I thought if the mounting error is lost some kernel modules too.
Do you think so?
I was try to add some fs like “btrfs”, but it’s not work.


Finally, it’s works!
it’s true that the kernel lost some modules for docker.

please see this page: ( about Kernel compatibility)

I use the script check my kernel config file and then it’s show me which modules are missing.

Thank you very one!
